Celebrate being Sapphic on Saturday

Every month, feminist bookstore Women & Children First (5233 N. Clark St.) hosts an event that's specifically for gay women. I know, you're saying isn't every event there for gay women? Well, we're invited, yes, but Sappho's Salon is just for us.

This Saturday's event will feature slam poet cin salach (pictured below), erotic poet DeDe of the Deviant Dyke blog and music from Dj SpinNikki. It kicks off at 7:30 p.m. and the store asks for a donation of $7-$10. (They're still trying to stay open, you know.)


Here's a little taste of what you can look forward to from DeDe. Maybe while you're there, hot and bothered, you can peruse the selection of Best Lesbian Erotica. You know, to keep W&CF in business.

She was the kind of femme that you longed to cherish
in your arms for eternity diving forth
into future lives with bliss saturated hearts.

She was the kind of femme that was
light hearted, free spirited, bright
as if the jade of life had yet to encroach upon her beautiful eyes
cascading her into tribulated territory old, tattered and warn.

No, this femme

She took you back to an age of innocence
when you could float on clouds without a thought of descending
holding dreams like visions predicting a perfectly perpetrated path.

Plainly, she graced your presence
with an acknowledgment of a world you never felt the need to enter.

A world that never quite seemed to fit in it's drag of quixotic repetition.
-No, on her it felt like home-

And you reveled in existence.

And now you bury yourself in her absence
with only a few frayed images resolving that
at one moment she was yours.

There will never be a femme like her in your eyes.
